Some Adjustments | Fragrance Posse

Posse.  Let’s speak about Some Adjustments.  What’s it about human nature that causes us to be extra all in favour of adverse modifications than optimistic (or impartial)?  We (the ever-present ‘we’) like to find out about divorces/fights/arrests/dramadamaDramaLlamaMama Drama/and so on… however hardly ever (okay EVER) can we get a zzzing! from listening to about ‘X  went to the grocery retailer right now and purchased stuff for lunch’

Welp!  Right this moment we’re going to do exactly that.  I’m going to take you on a recap of some current journeys into the center of one of many extra boring components of the Boring Winter Season :  Musette’s Musings on her native scene.

  1. My ROOF!  Might or not it’s any extra boring?  Newp!  And I’m right here for it!  Nevertheless, that is truly a bit extra emotional than only a regular re-roof.  That is the final piece of the Nice El O Debacle.  El O.  Sigh.  Such ability, completely destroyed by bloodymindedness.  That man, who might in all probability construct the Taj Mahal, put this absurd ‘addition’ atop his just about excellent first ground addition. Whyyy? Even worse? he by no means closed it in.  A yr after, it was Chicken Condominium and I used to be sad.  3 years later he left.  The ‘addition’ remained and have become the image for each Dangerous Resolution I’ve ever made.   This late Autumn my beloved, cranky contractor tackled the removing and rework of the roof – and it’s excellent. Native cheapskates say his work is ideal (it’s) however he’s ‘too costly’ (he’s not)  – ha!  You’ll pry this man out of my chilly, lifeless fingers; when he’s achieved it’s achieved to perfection.  And you would stroll out of your home with $1000 on the eating room desk and once you returned it could nonetheless be there, together with a lecture in regards to the foolishness of leaving $1000 on the eating room desk.  Chilly,lifeless fingers, folks.  Chilly. Lifeless. Arms.  Don’t Take a look at Me.
  2. As soon as accomplished I smudged the dwelling daylights out of the house and eventually really feel protected – and completely freed from El O’s miasma.  And my insurance coverage firm gained’t come after me, blessed be.  Again Porch!  Lookin’ at you, subsequent!  Then?  Then Paris, whereas Missy March and I nonetheless have tooth!  However Again Porch, first.  It’s gonna blister, that bill, however omg.  My Again Porch!  Glad Musette!  Paris can wait a bit.
  3. magnificent


    Lordt.  El O.  sigh.

  4.   I dwell on the Again of Past and it’s a bit grim – folks store at Walmart (and elsewhere) in pajamas and slippers!!! or shorts and socks and slippers!!! (I child you not.  It’s terrifying to behold).  Deer Season is the Massive Furry Deal round right here – and most males are bearded as much as match, lined in camo and deer blood.  Ladies, too, minus the beard (principally).    Folks have a look at me, in my glam boots and lipstick, as if a TRex simply walked in from a black-tie occasion aboard a spaceship.  I used to be lonely.  And unhappy.  However now I’m not as a result of I’m Making Buddies. Some actually faaaabulous girls dwell round right here, blessed be!  Humorous, good, fascinating.  Completely different from me in lots/most methods – however fabulous!   Y’all know I really like me some males (some males) – however they’re for very particular conditions.  Ladies?  Ladies are a day by day reward and the creating sorority right here is so very heartening.    And I’m discovering new (and fabulous) locations within the space that cater to ME!  TMI:  I’m an afficionado of The Wax – my ‘erm’  ladybits are curly, which suggests if I depil or (omg!) shave……yikes!  In Chicago/LA/and so on a Brazilian is simply Tuesday.  Right here?  um.  No.  I needed to go right down to Peoria, which isn’t that massive a deal however simply served to strengthen my ‘otherness’. Not anymore.  This charming little spa simply opened up in Kewanee – Prudence Rose Botanical Spa – and it’s as if it was made Simply For Me.  One of many house owners has even created smudging sprays, for many who are not looking for the smoke (they’ve an Etsy store however these aren’t but on there).  Jenn is my great new waxer and in the event you don’t assume that’s a Massive Furry Deal, assume once more.  She’s elegant, charming – and superb!  I believe I’m in love. We could do shade on my hair (head hair, you fiends.  HEAD HAIR)… however that’s for an additional day.  And so they appear to love me, which is extra of a crapshoot than you may assume.  With the spaceship, the glam boots and the jaws I’m undoubtedly an Aquired Style.
  5. Newbie’s Thoughts.  Loads of this can be a matter of my very own private development, born of getting been right here awhile now, sans El O.  Understanding that this native mindset is method completely different from my city one, the place persons are normally Not From the place they presently are.  Work relationships are completely different, as nicely – these friendships that develop since you’re collectively 12hrs/day.  These can occur – however round right here it’s nonetheless principally household as a result of once you depart work (even in the event you work in Peoria) you come house to 235 folks with a declare in your time.  It’s simply…completely different. Folks don’t have events the place they invite Not Household.  Once more…simply completely different.  However as I’m beginning to perceive it, I’m discovering workarounds. Anticipating folks to recollect to incorporate you is heartbreak .  Fortunately I’m a TRex and have NO downside respectfully inviting myself.  Nevertheless… it’s nonetheless….completely different.
  6. I can do that.  Altering my mindset, embracing what I’ve beforehand disregarded, discovering enjoyment of quotidian experiences …who’dathunkit!!??
  7. AND!  I’m portray once more!  AND! (BIG ‘AND!!!‘)  I’ve acquired 3 fashions for my ongoing sequence, entitled ‘The Graces’.  Squeeeee!  MODELS!  From HERE!  Ooooh, yay!  Attractive girls, every of whom have varied compelling qualities that intrigue me.  And they’re DOWN with this!  YESH!
  8. Who’daf#ckin’thunkit!!!
  9. Final Factor:  Apparently Floyd sez ‘This Is Good’ as a result of he rewarded my travails with:  DRAG BINGO!!!  Now.  You’re in all probability considering ‘yeah? annnnd?’ however bear in mind: that is a fair smaller model of the city in ‘Priscilla’ the place they provide that magnificent efficiency…. solely to be met with mute incomprehension (with a aspect of mute horror).  Nevertheless!  For some purpose many of the people of this 1400 particular person city within the midst of Pink Nation have determined that Devil is NOT sporting false eyelashes and a sequined robe!  As with the primary Drag Present this was held within the outdated gymnasium and it was a hoot!!!  Alas, I didn’t win Bingo.  Nor did I win any of the Silent Auctions.  I did, nevertheless, get thrown by one drunk farmer (actually – I used to be THROWN!!!) into the arms of one other, larger, (MUCH) youthful, just-as-drunk farmer… who, thank Floyd, caught me.  Any of you who’ve met me know I’m not a teeny gal – 5’8″ tall, measurement 8.  Not teeny.  However in the event you’ve spent your life baling hay and hefting calves I assume it’s simply Tuesday so that you can choose up and THROW! a full-grown human feminine.  He needed me to odor the youthful farmer (he smells so gooood!)  I did odor him.  He did odor good.  Or maybe that was the odor of my intense gratitude at him catching me.  No matter!  Small value to pay for an ideal, enjoyable evening with a bunch of bingophiles and drag queens.  
  10. In order that’s it for me.  And right here’s my query:  have any of you ever been picked up and THROWN! in your grownup life, simply on a whim?  And right here’s my OTHER query: what’s happening along with your lives??  And really final query (I promise):  is it Spring but?

bye, for now.  xoxoxo
